PANTHERS/MINORITY CONSULTANT SPLIT WITH NO EXPLANATION
Published December 5, 1994
The Panthers have "parted ways with the consultant who has been their liaison with minority and female business contractors since May '93." The responsibilities of Carol Lilly of LIL Associates in Charlotte will be assigned to another staff member, according to Panthers spokesperson Charles Dayton. But neither Lilly or Dayton would "explain her departure." The team is exceeding their goal of attaining 10%-15% minority participation in the construction of their $174M stadium, but Alfred Alexander, President of the Charlotte NAACP, intends to ask team execs about Lilly's departure (David Mildenberg, CHARLOTTE OBSERVER, 12/3).
